We're coming up on one of the watershed moments of a college student's freshman year - worse than the realization that the "freshman 15" is not an urban myth (except it's more like the "freshman 3") and more cringe-inducing than seeing a roommate in their underwear.
Hold up your hands and wave the white flag. Any argument about the holidays being too commercial is over, considering that lighted trees are in some store windows even before summer is officially over.
This film centers on the story of a young singer, Noni Jean (played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw,) on the cusp of success and fame but who hates her life. Forced into becoming a sex symbol with risque clothing and racy dances, Noni has to hide her inner self to become "the girl every guy wants" in order to sell records and appease her producers and controlling mother. After attempting to escape it all with suicide, Noni is rescued by cop Kaz Nicole (played by Nate Parker.) The two then begin their romantic relationship as Noni tries to find her self and her voice.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games' Lego series had some humble beginnings as their games acted as a way to bring a number of popular film series to consoles, computers and handhelds in a way that children, and the children at heart, could enjoy. Having such legendary film series, such as the "Harry Potter" series or "Star Wars" saga, infused with the wit and humor of the Lego series ensured the entire family could enjoy every game.
You may have noticed something different the last time you ate at your favorite restaurant or shopped at a local farmers market. Or perhaps you picked up on it while scrolling through your Instagram feed. Teens everywhere are diving into the culinary scene. For some, that means photographing every bite, but others are taking it one step further.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and chances are, you probably haven't bought your turkey yet. But we'll bet you're already on the lookout for Holiday presents for everyone on your lists. Here are some fun options that will bring a smile to everyone's face.
Q. I've been divorced for five years. I have two children and two bonus children from my previous marriage. They are all adults and three of the four are married with children. I remarried last year. We have always celebrated the holidays, particularly Thanksgiving, at my daughter's home as a family. This included their father, even after the divorce, but, the truth is, now that I have remarried, I really don't want to celebrate with my ex any longer. My husband is fine with celebrating with everyone - and they with him. It's me. When is it ok to start celebrating without my ex? I'd like to move on.
From the I'm Sorry to Have to Tell You Department: Parents who say they want to raise kids who "think for themselves" are not being exactly truthful. It's a nice and very democratic thing to say, for sure, but let's face it, folks, you want your kids to think like you do. For example: If you're a liberal, you want your kids to be liberals when they grow up. Right? Right! The same is true of conservatives, libertarians, people of faith, people of no faith, and people with COEXIST bumper stickers on their cars. Furthermore, that's the way it should be. When you conceive a child, you pass along your genes. As you raise the child, you pass along your worldview. If you are not trying to pass along your worldview, then you must think your worldview isn't worth passing along, and I've yet to meet such a person.
Dear Mr. Dad: I'm getting divorced, and the only thing my soon-to-be ex-husband and I agree on is that we want what's best for our children. He's been talking about joint custody and co-parenting and I'm leaning in that direction. But a friend of mine who went through a nasty divorce a few years ago says that joint custody never works out and that I should go for full custody. What do you suggest?
No mortal has a central nervous system like mine. Jumpy by nature, alarmed by every little noise, I have the nerves of a cheetah. My fuse is always lighted, my heart flits from branch to branch. As a kid, I was banned from zoos for upsetting the primates.
